Now you can make Facebook great again :)
Why do people like to avoid information that empowers and informs them about decisions affecting their lives?

@ianmayman Totally agree with you Ian. I get criticized by my friends when i post "serious" posts. Facebook it's a powerful instrument. It deserves to be used for more than just GIFs.

@ianmayman I wouldn't say it's about avoiding information. But these days my Facebook is bombarded with election junk that's inflammatory, degrading, frustrating, and unhelpful at best. I can't speak for others, but when I want to inform myself about politics, Facebook is not where I look.

@ianmayman I feel that this filter helps on days. Maybe not all days. But there are times you want to escape the evil of the world and really just see the better things human beings are capable of sharing. Which is why it is a toggle.

Wish I had this when Brexit was taking place in the UK. It's all people were talking about on Facebook

It seems to screw up the layout of FB for me. Hope they fix that.

@john_brunsfeld @jayson_elliot It's shoving my feed to the left. Screenshot:

@john_brunsfeld I'm using Chrome on a Macbook. The layout is left-aligned now instead of centered on my screen. When I start a new post, it's cut off so I can only see a small column, about 200 pixels. Everything to the right of that is grey - meaning I can't get to the "post" button.

@john_brunsfeld I'm seeing the same thing as @adamlaz - also, here is a screenshot of posting:

@jayson_elliot @adamlaz Thanks for the help guys, I'll dig through the FB dom and see what could possibly be happening.

@_pascalandy I like it and could trivially extend what I built to do that. I'll build it. Follow me if you want notified of the release.
